List of Yugoslav submissions for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film

This is the list of Yugoslav submissions for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film[nb 1] category. The award is handed out annually by the United States Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue.[3] It was not created until the 1956 Academy Awards, in which a competitive Academy Award of Merit, known as the Best Foreign Language Film Award, was created for non-English speaking films, and has been given annually since.[4]

Emir Kusturica was the last Yugoslav director nominated for the Academy Award before the breakup of Yugoslavia, for When Father Was Away on Business.
